The concept of internal consistency between words and actions is called integrity. Leadership integrity has been defined as the perceived pattern of alignment between the leader’s words and deeds or the extent that leaders are seen as practicing what they preach (Leroy, 2012). I have had occasion to witness this type of leadership behavioral integrity many times during my practicum experiences from my preceptor over the past 9 weeks. Since she assumed the role of CNO in her organization in 2017, she has espoused the importance of compassionate care, teamwork, collaboration and the critical role of RNs in the rehabilitation of patients. During countless meetings at all levels, with employees from all departments of the organization, I have witnessed her providing support, guidance, nonjudgmental critique and a willingness to roll up her sleeves and work alongside nurses to get the job done. The text states that the greatest threat to the servant leader is the craving for power (DelHousaye, 2004). I would argue that power is not something that needs to be craved, even by servant leaders, for they possess it already. The danger in power lies in how it is utilized. We all possess power in some form. When used with others in mind and for the good of others, power can be a positive thing. When used with integrity, honesty and charity, power can be a leadership tool.
Servant leaders must be internally consistent with their words and actions. Describe a mentor that you have had that displayed this kind of credibility. Share an example of what you witnessed from this person. Based on the text, contrast your response to the secular view of power.
